The measure of manliness is based on how many feminine or otherwise non-manly actions you can get away with. Do you agree with this statement? If not, then how would one measure manliness in your opinion?

I understand what TS is saying here. If you're the manliest guy people know and you wear clothes that would make anyone else look gay in them and they make you look badass, you are manly. Also, if you do anything that would seem feminine if normal people did it, but when you do it, it just seems normal, then yes TS, tht makes sense. But, I'd say how close your eyebrows can touch before it's just one determines manliness.

manliness is measured simply by how little of a **** you give about anything

I think yes, one measure of manliness can be how many feminine acts you can get away with without people thinking you are gay. There are other measures, though.

By the amount of blood they've spilt (measured in pints) and the amount of beer they've drank (measured in kegs).

Paradoxically, a truly manly man will not take time of his badass schedule to try and calculate either.

Measuring manliness is like measuring cup size: both make inferior specimen feel left out.

i think yes , you only need to lok at people like axl rose and russel brand or david walliams.

Manliness is directly proportional to insecurity. The more you worry about whether you're a fag or a pussy, the more "manly" you are.

By definition, "not giving a ****" means not caring about certain subjects, object, action etc. According to that definition there are many errors in the song you posted, which deals with the subject of not giving a ****. What were those errors?

To begin with, just creating a song about not giving a **** and posting it online reveals that the artist gives at least a bit of a ****. Its quite self-evident that he wrote the song and made it public for everyone to see. Now, if a person wouldn't give a ****, he/she wouldn't care if others hear the song, so he would've just kept it whereever, because he/she wouldn't give a **** if it got lost and thus keeping it in a safe location wouldn't matter.

Also, there are many errors in the lyrics. The artist states that he doesn't give a **** about toasters, chairs, eye vision, time to name just a few. Stating that one doesn't give a **** about these things would be accurate by itself, but adding that they'd rather eat uncooked food, stand, be blind and claiming that seconds are too short and hours are too long clearly states that the person has preferences about the subjects which is contrary to his statement that he doesn't give a **** about these things. If he wouldn't give a ****, he wouldn't let himself be bothered by anything.

In addition, one who doesn't give a **** doesn't need to portray himself/herself as a macho/babe/slut/hardass etc, because he/she would be completely comfortable of who he is as a result of not giving a **** about personality or appearance. The man in the video was trying to show himself as a macho gangsta and the video was too well processed for a guy who doesn't give a ****.

In conclusion, Jon Lajoie does give a **** and is not the manliest person ever.

That's a stupid definition. Manliness is measured by the display and/or possession of masculine traits.

The clothing one wears does not reflect someones manliness or lack of manliness in any way.

Being comfortable with your sexuality is manly, unless you have underlying homoerocticy.

manliness is a term used to describe an unmeasurable measurement. it doesn't exist, but in imagination. those that act differently to assure their place as a man are simply idiots. that's a nice term to describe them, 'men' aside, it's a sex, not a measurement. atleast, it's not reflected on the tightness of your undies or the size of your muscles, it's about how you define yourself. how you see yourself, not how you worry others see you. that's cowardly and you may aswell live your life in a fucking mirror of society.

Manliness can be defined as a lot of things. It can be how well you take care of yourself and your family, the ratio of give and take between you and the others around you, or how well you face and handle adversity. It can deal with mental stability and well-being. It can deal with social aptitude. It can deal with one's passion for life. It can even deal with superficial qualities like income and/or physical fitness. And yes, it can also deal with how "feminine" one is.

Basically, what I'm saying is that there's no one uniform measure for "manliness." It's a very broad term; it covers a lot of categories and is very subjective in and of itself. Asking for a measure of manliness is akin to asking someone to describe the taste of an orange: it's different for everyone.
I think it's time for a change.

Is the measure of femininity based on how many manly things you can get away with?

lol @ not knowing what sarcasm is, or listening to the whole song, as he says in the last third or so shit like "i dont give a f*ck so much that i give a f*ck. thats right i care the f*ck out of everything." or even trying to find out who jon lajoie is (which is a satire musician, sort of like Weird Al)

Actually this. Steve's definition works for defining whether or not you're a male, which could mean "manliness" I guess.

Well sir, you obviously put a lot of thought into this, thus giving a ****.

I'm questioning your manliness right now.

Your capacity to man up and take charge. Learning that there is no such thing as a free meal; you must be able to provide for yourself. Accepting that you are responsible for your own joy and happiness; do not expect others (including your parents) to cater to your needs and wants. Do not depend on others to do you any favours and do not live in the past.
